After a stunning 44-21 victory over the Packers sent the Falcons to the Super bowl, the Pro bowl has been replaced by hopes of a ring for Devonta Freeman and Alex Mack. For Eagles fans, this is huge as it means both Darren Sproles and Jason Kelce will receive Pro bowl nods to play in the traditional NFC vs AFC game next weekend.
